BACKGROUND Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), the major glycolipid component of Gram-negative bacterial outer membranes, is a potent endotoxin responsible for many of the directly or indirectly induced symptoms of infection. Lipoproteins (in particular, high-density lipoproteins) sequester LPS, thereby acting as a humoral detoxification mechanism. PATIENTS Differences in the lipoprotein composition in human plasma and lymph of a control patient group (n = 5) without systemic inflammatory response… CONTINUE READING
